It's the 1st Wednesday of May. Happy Insecure Writers Support Group Day. IWSG is the brainchild of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh.
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! Thanks, Alex, for starting this group and keeping it going. And thanks to this month's awesome hosts: E.M.A. Timar, J. Q. Rose, C.Lee McKenzie, and Raimey Gallant!
This month's Optional Question: It's spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?
Absolutely! I’ve mentioned having the winter blahs—think it was more depression.Then, I got pneumonia. So when Spring came along, the sunshine made me feel more energetic. Daughter said I need a “happy” lamp. I plan to get one so this doesn’t happen next winter.
I love Spring. Everything is greening up. Trees have buds. Daffodils and tulips are blooming. Yesterday, it got up to 80. Last week, it was in the 30s. If the sun was shining, the temp didn’t seem as cold. Yay for sunshine.
During the month of May, 12 science fiction and paranormal romance writers are donating 25% of their royalties for their special Blue Cover books to the ALS Association, an organization dedicated to providing ALS patients and their families with a multitude of different types of assistance, and continuing research to find a cure for this deadly disease..
I'm donating 25% of my royalties from my sci-fi romance, The Chameleon (An Outer Rim Novel) to ALSA in memory of Stephen Hawking. Despite the debility of ALS, he accomplished so much in the field of physics and cosmology.
Blurb for The Chameleon (An Outer Rim Novel):
Legally Blond meets Mata Hari
Security Officer Laning Servary has better things to do than babysit a spoiled rich girl on a tour of the Frontier. If he refuses, he can kiss his career good-by. Then Jileena’s father sweetens the pot. If Laning keeps her safe, his family will receive the land they share-crop. He can’t refuse.
In the close quarters of her ship, Laning and Jileena discover they aren’t who they seem. Pirates, weather, and her recklessness threaten to derail the mission. As Laning and Jileena revise their impressions of each other, they’ll have to make hard choices about their goals. Can their budding love survive?
